I'm working on a small project but I suck at art. I got referred to an artist friend of my mate but she is moving at a glacial pace and frequently creates deadlines then misses them. I've still yet to get a proper concept art, or any concept art beyond one minor character that apparently caught her interest.

I'm worried that she won't be up for the entire project or if she is it will be produced too slow so I want to find a good alternative.

Emphasis on good, how do you find and attract good artists /agdg/?

I think she's having difficulty particularly on the drawing. Have you ever gave her some ideas or examples on specific details about the drawing. Sometimes brain storming can be a bitch even for an artist.

It is literally the concept art, the first draft for what the main model will look like and by consequence the general style the game will have. I've sent her several pictures with elements I'd appreciate noted down.

Game is still under active development. Mostly been working on engine stuff some more, so nothing visual to show off.

I have most of the rendering loop done, so I can start to move onto actual game stuff, without having to rely on hacked-together draw calls, which was one of my main early goals. I really dig the art style in the OP post, so I might consider ways to incorporate that sort of visual stuff back into the game. I enjoy the look of low resolution palette'd photographs for backgrounds, pic related.

Hopefully I'll have something visually interesting in time for demo day, whether or not it's actually ready by then.

Politely bumping my thread to the first page. It's been 6 months, and the holiday crunch is well over. I've started to work on this project again. I keep getting distracted by VIDEOGAMES and work. Hopefully I can post interesting updates at least once a month (and reminder that I shitpost occasionally on Twitter: https://twitter.com/jackalsoftgames )

As for what's new, I split the game into 3 assembly projects - one is a general purpose engine on top of SFML that has all my universal things like custom collections, draw helpers, etc etc. The second assembly is a self-contained gamestate package which acts as the main mechanical stuff for the levels themselves. Finally, the third assembly combines the two (and SFML) into the game itself. It creates gamestate objects to simulate maps and replays, etc.

At least that's the plan. A lot of stuff is still barebones, but I'm hoping to have a functional demo by August's demo day, May if I'm able to ship a proof-of-concept demo by then.

I worked on a wire/logic system as well (pic related). I'm still ironing out the exact mechanics, but the idea is that you can interact with the buttons (the one with the dot) and send signals along the wires into the gates. The signal translates into an "activation" instruction to whatever tile it terminates on - this would flip gates, open traps, activate cloners and so on.

Would I actually need to handcraft each dialog interaction or is there some way to make it automated but not seem robotic.

To expand on this idea, I suggest giving NPCs different "personality" types where they have different things they like to talk about. A motherly NPC, for example, would be interested in conversations about children. A /doomer/ type NPC might be more dismissive of conversations about children and instead, prefer depressing talk.

You could give each piece of dialogue different tags which would allow you to construct different responses, like for example, /pol/-tier talk about sending children off to join the totally-not-nazi army would have tags like "scary", "children", "military" and the motherly NPC would respond to both the "scary" and "children" tags and recoil, "Oh my! That sounds absolutely frightening! Not my kids!"

Just spitballing.

Answering my own question, looks like the "Dialogue System for Unity" asset can be used like this.

Reading over the docs, they have variables you can track (the query) and use as conditions (the rules), even barks that can be used as branching conversations too.

Probably not as performant as writing it from scratch though... plus they have so much other shit though with "quests", special "quest conditions", their own shitty UI elements, networking, scene transitions, save systems, and other nonsense that doesn't belong. and I swear every other asset has their own shit implementation of localization that I have to rip apart.

idk why asset devs dump in shit like that when they could just sell it as addons, it just bog down the core dialogue asset when they insert every little request noob devs ask for. It ends up taking way longer to figure out because you have to sift through all that trash.

7 Days to Die hit a nice balance of performance and accuracy with its structural integrity. The gist of it is that vertical pillar stability is at maximum, and every horizontal block away from a vertical pillar lowers stability by 1. When stability hits 0 for the material in question, that block collapses. It's consistent enough that a player can understand the math in their head, and learn that they should put down a vertical support every 'x' horizontal blocks when building bridges.

https://7daystodie.gamepedia.com/Structural_Integrity

Interestingly, the infinite vertical stability only counts if the pillar goes all the way to the very bottom of the map. This means you can undermine a structure by digging the dirt under it, which may cause a heavily-loaded pillar to begin shedding its outermost blocks as the stability value of the core pillar decreases.

Performance-wise, it seems reasonable. It should just require the server to keep track of a stability value for every block, and whenever blocks are added/removed, propagate the changes to any adjacent block with lower stability than the current one. Adding a depth limit to the recursive function should prevent a rogue calculation from spreading across the whole map, sacrificing a little accuracy for performance.

Not that i'd implement this anytime soon, gotta get the basics done first.

This is almost exactly what I had in mind, though rather than the outermost unstable block collapsing, it would collapse at the point of the most stressed block. Good find.

Alright, i spent a lot of time fiddling with the server/client code trying to set up a new 0.8 protocol, but it looks like the build&shoot master server list might be discarding this server version as it can't recognize it.

The new approach is to change the client identifier from 'o' (Openspades) to '8' (8Spades). Then, we can just run a 0.75 protocol server with the detectclient plugin ( https://pastebin.com/22EWyayS ) and disconnect anyone not using the 8Spades client. This should make server hosting easier to set up.

I've been reading through the build&shoot and openspades forums some more, it looks like a lot of the requested server features may already exist as plugins.

Server-side fog control and persistent map damage are already built into pysnip. Weapon restrictions and damage balances are already available as plugins*. Spawn radius and grenade block damage are basically 1-line tweaks in the server python code. At this rate we should get exactly what we want running on a scripted 0.75 server, without the need for a new protocol.

* Weirdly the server defines the PVP weapon damage, but the client defines the block weapon damage.

So, i feel is time for me to pay homage to a manga that had the downfall of having a pedophile as a writer. I can see Kenshin fall down not because of absence of quality or relevance but solely because of agendas.

I wanna make a Rurouni Kenshin fighting game to keep the idea that the art is separate from the artist.

So, how do i make a fighting game?

I've got no notions on how to program but i feel like i'm destined to do it

Shame about Kenshin, I love both the manga and anime. It sucks more people can't separate the artist from their work, we really live in an age where personal politics are treated as the most important issue.

The good news is fighting games aren't the hardest of things to make. I suggest picking up a good engine (my suggestion is Godot because of how smooth it codes and how easy it is to make collision shapes which you'll need for hitboxes) and start learning your asshole from your elbow in it. I just picked up Godot recently and I feel very confident I could set-up a 2D fighting game in it even with my little experience (though I've worked a lot in Unity before). Mind you, you'll still need to either git gud at art or find an artfag who shares your love of Kenshin.

tl;dr learn an engine and how to code in it, then just like make game.

Learn2code is necessary, but you need to ask yourself: Why you need to learn to code? You need to learn code to make a video game? Great! One problem: Have you made plans yet? Pre-planning is half the work of designing the game. Coding is putting your designs to the test. You given us an idea but literally nothing else.

What are the rules? Can you break down the rules step-by-step that logically makes sense? If you base your game on another game then have you considered studying that game by reverse engineering it's logic and design? By pre-planning the logic design of your game as you study the coding language you will eventually get a better idea of how your game is going to play. Also sometimes your ideas don't go as planned as you code. Sometimes those ideas are used for another game. That's fine. If your fighter doesn't turn out to be mechanically possible but the mechanics are solid then you may want to switch to a brawler and see how that works.

Personally I think Kenshin would work just as well as a brawler if the focus is to master the character's moves. I can see switching stances altering how Kenshin swings. The direction of your swing determines whether or not you use the blunt edge to deal damage and KO/stun enemies or the cutting edge to destroy weapons and objects in the environment to disarm and trap your enemies respectively. Kenshin wouldn't just have health. He would have stamina, balance and momentum. If this is implemented into a fighting game then it will be a Power Stone like arena fighter rather than a 2D one. Let's break down.

-If you run out of stamina then you run out of breath and will have weaker swings. Some attacks won't be available and your senses could dull with the fatigue lowering your window of evading and just guarding.

-Balance determines what moves you can follow up with after a swing. If you attack with another stance that doesn't counter your balance, then you become off-balance. This not only stops your momentum; it leaves you will be open to attack and tripping as you re-balance yourself.

-Momentum is simply how fast, and sometimes hard, your attacks become. As simple as momentum is, it is the most complicated part the player has to manage. You want tPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

l2c etc. is obvious.

Besides wanting to make a Kenshin game I don't know how much you've considered. I've thought of making a fighting game in the past and here are some of the considerations I've made.

The important things to consider for a fighting game is what do you want, the 100 hit marvel combos, the space controlling "next hit kills" kind, or the mid range 10 hit combo with some level of space control. I know when I thought of the game I wanted to make, it's going to be closer to my favorite fighting game, so studying how that game does things is a good place to start, and thinking about how your game would diverge from those would be the next thing to consider.

When it comes to the game itself, even if Kenshin would obviously destroy a lot of the other characters, you have to be able to balance them out so if someone wants to play as the little kid they have a fair chance against the dude wrapped up like a mummy.

Movesets have to be unique and iconic. Movement can also be unique(dash vs run, giving a "speed" character an airdash or double jump.Making a huge guy walk slower). However it also has to be set clearly so people know how movement works. Mixing Samurai Showdown, KoF, GG, and SF movement together would be terrible.

As for the programming, it's pretty basic to begin with, but gets harder as you get closer to completion, and it's not about programming at that point it's about fine tuning.

left and right are horizontal movement. That's pretty simple. Up jumps. once you have your jump feel set also very easy. Most jumps are parabolic. easy math. setting up bottons for however many attack buttons you want. lmhs? lmh lmh? whatever. getting those to work is easy. programming in frames, invuln, cancelability, hitboxes, knockback etc it all pretty easy and you gotta match that to your animations, and the control of the frames, knockback and cancelability is what allows for combos.

On one hand I like gamemaker for it's workflow and all the built in tools, but it has no 3D, Unity has both but is bloated as all FUCK. And I can't do shit with Godot because it uses an autistic node setup.

Am I autistic, whats wrong with me? Why can't I settle on a fucking engine and start making games?! WHY IS IT SO HARD TO STICK TO IT?!?!

Just use Unity. The 2D tools are great and you can make some amazing stuff, needless to say that the 3D tools are freaking amazing. It sounds like you've no attention span, spend 1-3+ weeks designing a game and really asking yourself what you want to make (within a realistic scope). Figure out a basic gameplay loop and have the elevator pitch summary memorized. If you're committed at this point make the game, otherwise you'll probably just keep starting and stopping a new project each week.

You either need to commit or need to come up with a better idea. Because that's what is going on. You either lack the will to see a project through(fix this immediately if so) or you're hopping between projects rapidly because you're not in love with the ideas you come up with and need to make better ones.

I had a small panic attack yesterday trying to figure out Unity. This crap isnt accessible. I've got an idea for what I expect to be one of the next hottest games and I can't make it, no matter how fuckin hard I try.

If you can't figure out Unity after watching some tutorials, you might not be cut out for gamedev.

I did it at age 14 with no previous coding experience, toughen up. You have to actually put effort in to learning. Just follow a bunch of tutorials until your competent enough to make changing to the complicated code, then try make your own basic prototypes and simple games.

I spent well over 150+ hours on my first personal project trying to figure everything out and using what the tutorials taught me. Coding requires patience and a willingness to learn.

I want to make a game that looks like a 2D animated cartoon. Something like Cuphead. How did the devs make those Fleischer art? I'm not aiming for something overly ambitious. Just imagine those sprite games with smooth animations like the Marvel vs Capcom games and replace them with 2D art.

How is the process of finding out how to modify a game?

How do you find out the format of the files, the scripts, etc?

And in programming do you have to add some logic to make the game "modifiable"?

That is a very broad question. In some games all you can do is change textures or models. Some games have some kind of scripting system which you can use to add your own content (like Elder Scrolls Construction Set). Some games have a community of absolute madmen who reverse-engineer the game code and add all kinds of crazy shit, like Super Mario Maker 64, various Pokemon romhacks, Zelda randomisers etc. Technically you can reverse-engineer any game and add what you want, but realistically you will be dependent on whatever tools the community has.

That + politics. I get why more and more people are moving to much more moderated communities to try and avoid the current "culture". My inner tinfoil-hat tells me someone is behind the mass dumbing down of millennial's and Gen X who'd otherwise oppose the status quo. More realistically though, it's probably that but to a larger extent just instant gratification and shortened attention spans.

Why would somebody have to be behind it? Humanity was given the society it wanted. As long as you can show up to work every day, then society is designed to keep you alive. Kinda like how cows don't need to do anything except eat grass and grow. The side-effect is that people become stupider. If there's no reason to learn things, then most people are going to be perfectly content going through life ignorant.

We also insulate ourselves from danger. Initially this meant protecting our homes and families, but slowly things have gotten worse and now people want to be protected from thoughts that make them feel uncomfortable. Eventually people will get scared by anything they aren't familiar with. The scariest thing is that humans want this. I once had a supervisor complain to her boss, saying "he makes me feel unsafe". This was in a fucking factory lol. We have these people in the blue-collar industry now.

Anyway this rant doesn't belong here really. My point is that people are perfectly capable of destroying their own society without any external force.

Not really. Colonialism forced this way of life upon the rest of the world.

They didn't want it, they were forced to accept it. And it doesn't end there.

The forced institution of fiat money puts everyone into debt slavery.

The banking cartel don't have to work. They just leech of the rest of mankind like parasites.

I wasn't making the argument that you as an individual wanted this. It's what out society collectively decided. I live in the west and therefore I talk from a western perspective. There are cultures out there that do things differently, but so far it seems that capitalism is the only system that's working. Unfortunately it's also self-destructive.

>The banking cartel don't have to work. They just leech of the rest of mankind like parasites.

Debating this would require a comprehensive explanation of how economies work. I'm not prepared to do that here, however The Ascent of Money is a good primer.

-Job change system

-8 floors of 3d dungeon exploring + puzzles (although not very complex)

-boss fights

-super hard difficulty

-90% grinding and

-terrible graphics, all prerendered no animation

how many testers do you have, how many hours have they spent beta testing, how many hours long is the game

publishing on steam is a beast in and of it self. doing a non-shit job is a lot more expensive than the publishing fee.

But two hours of man labor is plenty expensive on its own.
